It's been a good year for me. My jewelry was voted for the 6th time Best of Edmonton 2018 "Best Custom Jewelry Store" by Edmontonians who have supported me from the beginning. It is the raw and handcrafted aesthetic of my jewelry that continues to have an allure for my customers. I am very grateful that my work is acknowledged by them. Also having one of my pieces of jewelry curated and chosen to be in the Edmonton Made Gift Catalogue 2018 has been a major highlight. Although I have been at this craft for over 16 years, I was still nervous as to what to submit. I choose the "Solitary Pebble Necklace" which is inspired by the circles formed when you skip a pebble in the water. Here is the link to the Solitary Pebble Necklace.

My Solitary Pebble Necklace reminds me of this day.

Memories of my little one.
Inspiration for my jewelry comes to me daily. I am always creating pieces in my head which I then often draw out and then head into my studio to create it in bronze or silver. It is a never ending process that I live each day.
Thank you for acknowledging this desire to create every day.
